The Kanium twitch channel

Guten Tag all,

as some of you might know, we have a twitch channel. This was created in order to establish a bigger media presence for Kanium in order to advertise more for our community. Admittedly this has always been a weak area for us but the twitch channel is one of the first steps in order to improve that.

Right now the Kanium Twitch channel hosts a few Kanium members doing some casual streaming but we still lack people that want to become more serious about it.

Thus i have decided to take the first step and start out with some more serious streaming, starting with 1-2 days per week and testing/building up from there.

Want to help out? Then watch me stream! Any interaction is welcome! Simply letting the stream run in the background to bump up the viewer count will also help attracting more people. I will also appreciate constructive feed back as i surely will be missing things or making mistakes seeing this is also very new for me.

Kanium Movie Night

Movie night is an old Kanium event which we decided to reintroduce. We come together as a group on Discord and hop on a third party website that syncs up a video of choice for us to watch.

General banter and movie critique allowed but don’t overdo it!

As for the next movie we are going to watch, you can find that here.

Escape from Tarkov [Recruiting]

Guten tag all,

we are currently playing a lot of Escape from Tarkov to experience all the new content that has been patched in. We also started to recruit more people to our ranks for EFT.

Note: The game is still in closed beta atm so it’s still under development but the devs add improvements and content on a regular basis.

Escape from Tarkov is an hardcore survival fps with a lot of realism and rpg elements. The first and essential mode is available in the current beta which are raids. A raid typically last an hour or hour and a half long and takes place on various large open maps, about 5-10 sq. km.

The player will have to consecutively clear all of these raid scenarios, with several possible exits. By completing one raid, the player unlocks the next one. Players can return to the previously unlocked raids in search for particular loot or more detailed exploration.

When all raids (there will be around 10 of them) are completed, a free roam mode will be unlocked. In this mode, player can move around a 15-20 sq. km. area without any time limits. (Not in the beta yet)

The main RPG elements in the Escape from Tarkov are the grid based inventory system, leveling traders and character skill upgrades. New levels will be gained by acquiring new experience – combat, looting, healing, exploration, lockpicking etc.

Anyone is welcome to join. Interested in getting the game? Then head over here: https://www.escapefromtarkov.com/preorder-page

Rainbow Six Siege

Hey guys,

as some of you have noticed a lot of us are playing Siege Lately and i would like to extend an invite to the rest of Kanium to join in with the fun!

Will this be the next big thing? I have no clue but it supplies the community for some good fun for a while. Though i am keen to find out if there are other competitive Kanium members that are perhaps interested in setting up a 5 man ranked team.

Where to buy it? Simply buy the starter edition on steam or a cheap standard edition from the many key shops out there. Unlocking operators is easy enough regardless of what edition you buy.

Kanium playing Conan Exiles

Guten tag all,

next week we will be playing Conan Exiles as a group to have some fun. Conan Exiles is an open-world survival game set in the lands of Conan the Barbarian. We start with nothing but our bare hands and have to forge the legacy of the Kanium clan and Garuman The Black.

The game offers a large open map with full PvP and looting. The game also is big on exploration and pve. Along with a large crafting system allowing us to build bases much like in games like Rust and Ark etc.

Additional Text/voice channels will be setup on Discord. Follow the text channel for additional news on our Conan adventures.

Initial Goals:
– Establish a tier 1 base in the southern part of the map to operate out from.
– Establish several hidden caches to store valuable crafting material and gear.
– Gather Resources to be able quickly establish a tier 2 base in the center.
– Reach lvl 20 by exploring the southern part of the map, completing journeys and crafting/pve.

Long Term End Goal:
– Dominate our chosen server.

Time and date:
Starting on Monday 4th of June at 7:00 PM CET. Will be playing every evening that week.

Anyone is welcome to join or to drop in halfway. Interested in getting the game? Then head over to steam or get a cheaper steam key from third party websites.

Blurring the borders of fiction into reality: “The Bear’s Gambit”

“…their nations stand divided and the UN is paralyzed. Anything that they might try to push through, can be blocked by either us or the Chinese. And the Chinese, like us, haven’t forgotten the western UN abuse in Libya. Like the League of Nations was, the UN is a toothless and weak old man, run by corrupt fools. And it is one that will be put out to pasture when the time is right. We will secure the next buffers in three to four years as planned, barring any unforeseen events. And then we are secure from the west”

Comrades, we stand now at the edifice of our Russian legacy in this latest Kanium Steel Beasts event. History has so far transpired in a loose illusionary fashion with little regard for the actuality of our circumstances; this will now be corrected in 2018 by the might and glorious plans of our beloved president, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.

In our modern times, reality seems to shimmer and flicker with a story that is so attuned to actual past- and current events, that several people have already remarked how unsettling it is.

This is because the beautifully crafted narrative, by Nike-Ajax and ShortNSweet respectively, is an effort to push the experience of Steel Beasts to something that we hope, is a lot more close to home in order to increase the immersion and fun. The event comes with an comprehensive background story from 1975 Leningrad to the present day, propaganda imagery and believable dialogue – some of it real, some if it..questionable? Perhaps? All of this has been put into a context of the current difficulties experienced in Ukraine, as well as past events that lead up to this moment.

We invite you all to join us in, as aptly named, “The Bear’s Gambit”

Kanium: Steel Beasts New Years Special 2017

Ladies and Gentlemen, brothers and sisters, comrades, friends and fellow Kanes! Welcome to the 2017, Kanium Steel Beasts New Years Special!

Soon 2018 will be here and most people will shoot off fireworks to celebrate that. We will too, we just have slightly different fireworks in mind.

The year is 2017, or is it 1984? The lines begin to blur as the story of history unfolds in this latest awesome and ambitious event from the sterling ranks of Kanium. In it, we aim to take participants through the intense and heavy task of facing down the vast armies of the Soviet Union, as they thunder across the European landscape during a potential nuclear crisis, almost waiting to happen. It will be a fight that requires everyone to be on their toes, do their duty and think fast. As the mission text describes:

“…every man and vehicle counts, because the battle will not be over anytime soon”

The event has been crafted with great care and effort, having a fully fledged background story, clear orders and enough material to last for many hours of gameplay. Gameplay we want to share with you all. It is for this reason we, Kanium, would like to invite each and every one of you to join us and see what its like to play “survive the onslaught of the horde”, but with tanks instead of zombies. Oh yes, it will be Epic!
